Your contribution will help us produce collaborative exhibitions, performances or products which will represent this time in our living history i.e. capturing an artistic record of this time in history through different art forms, from amateur, semi-professional and professional artists. These projects will be delivered online to adapt to our changing world. 

You'll be sponsoring the following activities:

  • Art tutorials
  • Music tutorials
  • Live online "gigs" with local musicians
  • Music videos
  • Community Choir projects
  • Interviews with local ArtistsMusicians and Makers

You will also be contributing to community cohesion and wellbeing. 

People just like you can help us deliver these projects to help reshape their lives in a way that is both reflective of the current climate and sustainable for the future.

Bucket Band - Materials Pack
The Bucket Band packs you provide will be delivered to workshop participants. Annabel from the Musician Ship will make a video covering drum decoration, how to make a rainbow shaker and jump start rhythms. This
will be followed by 4 online Zoom sessions to build foundations of working as a bucket band. 
Aspects of pulse, rhythm and percussion technique will be covered as well as activities to
encourage creative expression through a safe and supported space. We will teach the group
ways of using free and accessible music software like Drumbit and Chrome Music Lab as
ways of creating a play along / backing track and also enhance understanding of rhythm. This
is a pilot project if successful the funding will kick start a more permanent youth music project.
